Video games in and of themselves are fun and exciting, but they're also powerful tools which inspire their fans. Take any franchise out there and I'm sure there's dozens, if not hundreds of fan tributes out there. One of the more amazing tributes I've come across in recent times combines Shovel Knight with Gundam. Yes, you read that right, and it's definitely as breathtaking as it sounds.

Using what appears to be a Helmwige Reincar Gundam model (1/144 scale) as a base, Shovel Knight superfan Ryoimaru expertly crafted the titular character and some of his accessories. No true knight is complete without his shovel, so of course one was made for the mech. In addition, Ryoimaru created the Propeller Dagger for increased forward motion. The model looks absolutely stunning and is fully posable to boot!

No doubt this is one of the most epic fan creations I have ever seen. Ryoimaru should be very proud of the result! Make sure to check out this amazing work in the gallery below, and let us know what you think in the comments!
